Are ready for longer rides, but need a balance of comfort and performance? The Kestrel RT-1000 is a great choice for endurance road riders who like to stretch out their mileage on the weekends, ride Gran Fondos, or who simply want a fast bike, but without the aggressive body position. The Kestrel RT-1000 105 road bike features a full carbon frame and fork, Shimano 105 11-speed components, and Oval Concepts 527 wheels. A close cousin to the Kestrel Legend, but with more relaxed geometry, the RT-1000 boasts Kestrel’s aerodynamic DNA and is, therefore, plenty fast; yet offers greater comfort over longer distances. The geometry features a taller head tube that puts the rider in a more upright position to ease back fatigue, a longer wheelbase that increases stability, and a slightly sloping top tube that allows the rider to mount and dismount more easily. The RT-1000 is constructed of Kestrel’s Enhanced Modulus Hybrid EMH carbon; a combination of 800K and 700K carbon fibers. It’s lightweight and stiff, yet also designed to offer a bit more compliance. A tapered head tube enhances lateral stiffness for excellent steering precision. Shimano 105 11-speed components bring efficiency and ergonomics to the RT-1000, along with the versatility of a Shimano 105 compact crankset. Oval Concepts 527 wheels and Vittoria Zaffiro Pro 25c wide tires deliver dependable performance and grip. A set of Shimano 105 brakes supply dependable braking performance and a ZIPP Service Course finishing kit make the Legend shine like no other.Features: Kestrel Enhanced Modulus Hybrid EMH carbon frame and tapered fork Shimano 105 11-speed components Oval Concepts 527 aero rims ZIPP Service Course bar and stem Each of the frame sizes has unique tube lengths, diameters, shapes, and carbon layups to produce the best possible ride quality for every size rider

This is the do-it-all-do-it-everywhere bike. Let’s say you find a shortcut to work. But that shortcut takes you through a winding forest road and up and down a gnarly bike track before dropping you out onto the concrete streets of downtown. This varied terrain excursion seems impossible. But not for Retrospec Bicycles’s UrbanCross Amok-16. This is the ultimate cyclocross commuter, equipped with 16 speeds, Shimano STI shifters, and cantilever brakes. The 4130 Chromoly frame is hand-built, tig-welded, and double-butted. This means you can zig and zag every single day and feel great knowing your bike is up to the challenge. The Shimano 2400 Claris 16 speed drivetrain with STI shifters is top-notch and almost exclusively on top tier bicycles because of their reputation for accuracy, control, and dependability. The shift function is integrated into the brake levers for a clean handlebar setup. Talking about handlebars, we put drop handlebars on this badass CX bicycle because we want you to be able to ride as aerodynamically as possible. The rear brake cable is routed on top of the top tube to avoid snagging fabric when carrying the bike. We’ve also stuck Kenda Small Block 8 CX tires on this beast of a bike for comfort and reliability. The unique tread disperses water so you grip the road where the road needs to be gripped. The sealed mechanism bottom bracket and hubs will keep mud and muck out of crucial bearings, keeping your bike healthy and safe so it can keep you up to speed.
